  • Welcome to Florence Chamber of Commerce

    Florence is a friendly little town nestled on the edge of the scenic Texas Hill Country. We are located just off of Highway 195 between Killeen and Georgetown, with the lovely Salado Creek winding through. Florence continues to maintain an atmosphere of quiet country living, while offering unique gift shops, antique stores, western wear store, a complete grocery store, churches, gas/convenience stores, several restaurants and even a vineyard. Florence is proud to honor over 200 names of our local veterans who were involved in foreign wars. These names are recognized on a War Memorial, built in 1989 located next to our City Hall Building in Downtown Florence.
